Grind Levels Explained

Proper coffee extraction is critical for achieving that perfect cup at home. Grind size is one of the few ways to be able to directly affect that extraction rate.

In addition to whole coffee beans, we currently offer 3 different coffee grind levels:

Coarse (Think sugar in the raw, maybe more coarse)
Recommended for

  • Chemex Brewer
  • French Press
  • Cold Brew

Medium (Slightly coarser than table salt)
Recommended for

  • Any flat bottom brewer
  • Kalitta wave
  • Cloth filters

Fine (Slightly finer than table salt)
Recommended for

  • V60 pour overs
  • Typical cone filter coffee pots
  • Aeropress

If you're interested in ground for Espresso, choose fine and mention something in the order comments.

If at all possible, we recommend grinding at home. We prefer Baratza coffee grinders and offer several of their models for sale. Click here to shop for one of their brewers.

In the Cup:

Ninety Plus is an interesting piece of an innovative movement we’ve seen in the coffee industry lately. They focus not only on hyper-meticulous cultivation and harvesting practices, but they also stand as frontrunners in innovation regarding fermentation methods in coffee processing. Offering some of the most expensive coffee you can buy from Panama, Ninety Plus is one of the most prized producers to come out of the Central American region.

This Lotus lot is among the finest Panamanian coffee you can buy online. The coffees that Ninety Plus is putting out are pushing the boundaries for what coffee can taste like. When we cupped samples from the Ninety Plus Gesha estates, the coffees were so incredibly dynamic and flavor heavy that our palates were imbalanced for the next couple of weeks. Nothing could even compare to this coffee, that’s how flavorful it is.

The dry grounds have an extremely unique balsamic-like smell to them, given the proprietary fermentation processing. They also have loads of berry-like brightnesses and malic acidities when you taste them brewed. Hints of the floral bitterness of lime zest and wine-like acidity also come forward as the coffee cools into a smooth and sweet coffee, unlike anything you’ve ever tasted. This coffee is extremely strange and unique. Buying it doesn’t only support some of the most meticulous farming practices in the world, but also allows you to get a glimpse into how far coffee really can go.

The last batch will ship after Christmas.

This coffee will roast in 1kg batches. This is different than our usual roast on demand. When a batch is full, we will roast it and ship all 8 bags at once.

Ninety Plus Gesha Estates

The Ninety Plus Gesha Estates were designed with inspiration drawn from coffee growing wild in its natural habitat in Ethiopia. The Gesha variety, along with all heirloom coffee varieties, comes from the understory of wild forests in Ethiopia. These heirloom varieties of coffee live very long lives, up to 100 years or more, and produce relatively small amounts of intensely aromatic coffee.

The estate’s founder, Joseph Brodsky, had an opportunity in 2009 to acquire this large property and had a vision of reforesting its historic cattle farming lands with native tree species while planting the shade-loving Ethiopian Gesha coffee beneath the canopy. With its first significant production in 2014, coffee from Ninety Plus Gesha Estates was used to win the first of five World Brewers Cup Championships in six years. Ninety Plus Gesha Estates proves that coffee can be utilized to reforest and sustain tropical lands while also producing some of the highest-valued coffees in the world.
